GROW Garden Sign

Sometimes we all need a little encouragement. I’m definitley encouraging my garden to GROW with this DIY wooden letter sign. It’s large and in charge and makes a bold statement in the yard. My friends over at Plaid sent me these 18in wooden letters along with some wonderful multi-surface acrylic paints to use on this project. These letters exceeded my expectations upon arrival. They come in four different styles and are/will be available for purchase at Walmart […]

Terra Cotta Bird Feeder

If you give the birds a DIY Bird Bath, they’ll probably ask for a handmade bird feeder. Well, thats what happened at my place and I was happy to oblige. The first thing I did was drill three small holes, that formed the shape of a triangle, into the sides of a terra cotta saucer. Make sure the holes are below the lip of the saucer. Then, I painted the inside and outer top portion of […]

DIY Bird Bath

I recently planted a quaint flower garden in my backyard. I knew from the start that I wanted a spot for my feathered friends. I’ve been looking at a lot of gorgeous bird baths online, but in my true fashion, I decided to DIY my own. I’m so happy I did! I’m thrilled how it turned out and it looks perfect next to my terra cotta pot wind chime. I found this old lamp at […]

Terra Cotta Pot Makeover

The weather here has been very rainy lately. Since, I wasn’t able to plant flowers in these once boring terra cotta pots last week, I painted them instead. Maybe the rain was a blessing in disguise because these pots were definitely in need of a makeover! Thankfully my friends over at Plaid had provided me with their new FolkArt Coastal paint line a few weeks back. These texture paints were perfect for this project. I used three […]

Terra Cotta Pot Wind Chime

I’m so happy Spring is here and I can turn my attention outdoors again. I’m ready to plant flowers and spruce up the backyard with art. I have a few outdoor craft projects up my sleeve that I can’t wait to share. This terra cotta pot wind chime is my first creation. It’s so bright and cheery and makes a lovely sound when the wind blows. Disclosure: Project materials and this post are sponsored by Plaid. Project […]

Faux Flamingo Taxidermy

I had a few leftover flamingos from my flamingo hanging lamp project. When life hands you plastic flamingos, you make faux taxidermy. Well, thats what I did at least! Besides being completely fabulous, this flamingo wall art could be put to practical use. It would make a great necklace or hat holder. In the kitchen, it’s the perfect spot for a hand towel. If you think this fellow is cute, scroll down to see his extremely sophisticated […]

Dollar Store Succulent Wreath

Succulent decor is so in right now, but can come with a hefty price tag. I’ve seen some faux succulent wreaths online selling for over $100! Would you believe me if I told you that I made this wreath for $26 (plus taxes, of course)?! How? Because, all of the items used came from Dollar Tree. Yes, they sell succulents and in order to make this wreath you’ll need a case of them. I recommend ordering them […]

Dollar Store Flamingo Hanging Lamp

It turns out that I have a thing for pink plastic flamingos. My love for them goes deeper than I imagined and this flamingo hanging lamp project confirms it. I should have seen the signs. I mean, I do have a life-size one in my home year round and I did throw a flamingo themed party once. Really, whats not to love? They’re pink and kitschy as hell. This lamp though is flamingo perfection. Ok, to make […]
